Spring Session FAQs

4S Dance Academy will be closed in observance of Memorial Day. 

We plan to continue offering in-studio classes with a Zoom livestream option for families with dedicated online students or for students who need to quarantine.

Yes! Discipline and routine is a part of all dance, not just ballet. Having your dancer wear a dance dress, leotard or other approved dance attire is a large part of the discipline which also creates familiarity and routine! You can find out all of the details on our Dress Code page.

In-studio Make-Ups are back! Online make-ups will be offered if dictated by the County’s COVID safety requirements. Make-ups are not guaranteed and are limited to (2) per semester, per dance genre, and then on a case-by-case basis. They should be reserved for unplanned absences (e.g. illness, family emergency). Regular attendance is not only the foundation for a dancer’s growth, but also builds great lifelong habits! 

Our Mommy & Me! classes are back on the schedule for the fall! We loved having dads (Mr Jason was one!), grandparents and guardians/baby sitters bring our tiniest dancers to class before the pandemic and can’t wait to see a new group of little adorable smiles this fall!
For more detailed info, check out our Mommy & Me! webpage. Still have questions? Please Contact Us!

Our fantastic Adult Program is scheduled to resume this fall. Classes are not yet on the schedule, but we plan to add them in October. For more detailed info, check out our Adult Program webpage or Contact Us!

6/9 Thursday 7:00 PM Show (4:00 PM Call Times Start)
6/10 Friday 7:00 PM Show (4:00 PM Call Times Start)
6/11 Saturday 1:00 & 4:00 PM Shows (10:00 AM Call Times Start)

California Center for the Arts, Escondido (CCAE)

Due to the number of students that participate in the Spring Performance, there will be multiple shows rather than one extraordinarily long show. Students need to rehearse on stage and that would require a second long day at the theatre. A large number of our students are only in one performance piece and with multiple performance days, we can hold the dress rehearsal and performance in the same day for each show.

There are other reasons, like audience capacity, as there would not be enough seats for everyone to watch if there was only one show.

 We have created a PDF of the classes that will be in each show. Look for your dancer’s class name, day/time and teacher on the following show list:
4SDA 2022 Show List – By Show

You can also find out which show by logging into your 4SDA Account. We’ve also posted the lists at the studio.

Tickets are sold by CCAE via their box office. They can be purchase online (ticket fee applies), over the phone (ticket fee applies), or in person at the box office (no ticket fee). See our Spring Performance Page for all of the details!

Summer Registration - Enrolling All Students!

We are so proud of our dancers as they have grown so much, dancing in-studio and online, during these difficult times!

Summer Session FAQs

Our former session is less formal than during the school year. Athletic / dance attire is required for all camps, workshops and classes, but there is not a formal uniform. Our ballet intensives do require students to wear leotards, tights and ballet shoes, but there is no color or style requirement. Proper dance footwear is required for every class, camp and workshop (e.g. ballet shoes, jazz shoes, non-marking sneakers etc.) Please CONTACT US for further detailed information.

Make-ups are not offered during the Summer Session. Camps, Workshops and Intensives are paid for in advance and have specific curriculum designed for each day. Our Open Classes are offered via a drop-in basis, and thus can be canceled at no charge up to 48 hours in advance of the start of the class. 

Feel free to Contact Us with any questions!
